11-30-2012 (RFBMS) - During American Diabetes Month (November) - Miss Hoover 2013, Briana Kinsey, invited local teens to take action and Join the Millions in the fight to Stop Diabetes through dance in the second annual "Dance Away Diabetes Event" to support the American Diabetes Association.

On November 18, more than seventy energetic and talented teens representing three high schools—Hoover, Pelham, McAdory—and two middle school dance teams—Bumpus and McAdory Middle—participated in a fabulous exhibition of their dance routines at the beautiful Riverchase Galleria.

The fans, family and friends of the various dance teams voted for each of the teams as the People’s Choice. The dance teams which had the most fan support at the middle school level was Bumpus Middle and at the high school level, the winning team was from Hoover High School. Both teams were named the number one Dance Teams to Dance Away Diabetes for 2012. All of the teens also learned important information on how they can confront, fight, and stop diabetes. Each dance team took a pledge to adopt a healthier lifestyle, which included eating healthy and participating in a regular exercise program. They were encouraged to share the information learned with their family and friends.
